Persistence pays off for Ambarvale best mates with $200,000 lottery loot
Two close friends from Ambarvale will forever cherish the moment they received a phone call revealing their $200,000 win in today’s Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw.
The south-western Sydney residents won the guaranteed 1st Prize of $200,000 in Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw 1623, drawn Tuesday 5 September 2023.
As well as winning the 1st Prize of $200,000, the dynamic duo scored a consolation prize of $1,000, bolstering their total bounty to $201,000.
Straight after the draw, we reached out to one of the winning mates who answered the phone in complete bewilderment.
“Wow, oh my gosh,” the winning man laughed.
“This is crazy. I’m so shocked.
“I’m at work right now. I was so confused why you were calling me, but now that I know, it’s the best phone call I’ve ever received!
“This win is shared with one of my friends. We’ve been buying a ticket together in these draws for quite some time now.
“We’ve been doing this for a year and a half, and we only ever play Lucky Lotteries!
“I can’t wait to give him a ring. He won’t believe it.
“Thank you for this incredible phone call.”
With the warmer weather opening the doors to more holidays, the New South Welshman couldn’t wait to book a cruise this spring with his share of the prize.
“I’ll be going on a holiday, that’s for sure!” he exclaimed.
“Maybe a cruise would be nice.
“I’m not sure what my friend will do with his share of the prize but there’s a good possibility that we will celebrate this win tonight!”
